SORT BY Relevancy
This program was recorded before a live studio audience in the Carlton Union Building at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we continue our conversation with the students of Stetson about faith and the relevance of religion for the Millennial generation in the 21st century.
It seems every religious group has its fundamentalists. So, are religious people particularly prone to fundamentalism? Or, is it just part of some people’s personality? And how about religion and politics? Is there a line between faith and political involvement? Can we honor both our religious values and our responsibilities as a member of a diverse nation, at the same time?
The topics for this program were selected by students at Stetson University. We’ll get into these difficult issues of fundamentalism and religion and politics from a faith perspective with the students. Their questions, and our conversation with them is the content of this program.

The Pew Research Center says: "By some key measures, Americans ages 18 to 29 are considerably less religious than older Americans. Fewer young adults belong to any particular faith community compared to older people today. Also they’re less likely to be religiously affiliated than their parents’ and grandparents’ were, when younger. Fully one fourth of the Millennial generation are unaffiliated with any particular faith group. And more young people say that religion 'isn’t very important in their lives' compared to the elder generation."
The topics for this program were selected by students at Stetson University. These young adults have some “significant” questions for us around the issues of inclusion regarding faith communities and religious authority.

On this show, Jeff discusses some of the things to evaluate when interviewing Millenials.
We have an exclusive interview with We the Kids President, Judy Lane. We explore outreach to the Millenial generation. Such issues include: community, self reliance, liberty, personal responsibility, traditional family values, honesty, and hardworking. We shall hit each topic quickly and then listen to what the Millenials have to say.
I get accused of many things. My liberal friends think I am a right wing wacko hard core capitalist. My right-wing friends think I am a socialist Communist bleeding heart.
Others think I am a wishy-washy independent playing both sides.
If you really want to categorize me, then I guess you could call me a social liberal and a fiscal conservative. But that is way too broad.
I think of myself – without modesty -- as forward thinking. I see myself as thinking like a millennial with the experience of a baby boomer.
That’s why I see problems differently from most Americans. Too many of us think we are a Republican or Democrat. The problem is Democrats and Republicans are on the same side.
Both political parties -- and their elected officials -- are working together -- against you the American taxpayer. And they win every single time.
The best example is the Congressional committees on the IRS and Benghazi. I'm not saying that something isn’t wrong in what those investigations are trying to look into. But go back over the last two decades and look at all the other congressional investigations. The Democrats did the same thing when they were in power. Think of all the investigations of corruption by the GOP and the Bush administration that was alleged by Democrats.
Think of what the GOP did against Clinton with Whitewater and Vince Foster’s death – and Monica Lewinsky.
What was the purpose? Campaign tactics. And what's the end result. Taxpayer money spent and no real answers at all.
In fact, when you look at the campaign-finance laws, you realize they work hand-in-glove with these congressional investigations. They raise money for candidates and special interests.
And most of us in America fall into this game of either siding with the Democrats or the Republicans.
Children born in an era when three major outer planets formed what's called a stellium in astrology have grown up under the most unusual circumstances. Framed around a cluster of planets, all in close proximity, the millenials have grown up in a world far different than many of their baby-boom parents. A stellium is a close alignmeent of three or more planets in the same zodiacal proximity. In the case of these millenials, the three planets were Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune which were all located in the middle degrees of Capricorn, a place in the grand wheel that is being triggered by the current position of Pluto. This has presented this generation with a much different picture of daily reality than many a generation has had to face. Saturn represnts responsbility, Uranus harkens rebellion, and Neptune provides a shroud of fog that clouds the view dramatically. Disillusionment, harsh reality, and a dream that has yet to appear. This has become the cross this generation bears. Listen as I speak with one of the world's most respected astrologers on this topic. Donna Cunningham writes of this topic with an honest, empathetic eye and sheds insights on what will become of this generation. Listen and learn. Do you have a millenial under your roof?

In Episode 1 (not to worry, we'll catch you up today!) we talked about 'What is Culture?', and
laid down some vocabulary on how to understand this concept a little deeper. We even began separating it
from similar terms, like Ethnicity, which we will revisit from time to time.
Today, in Episode 2, let's talk a little about 'Culture Change', which is an idea on everyone's mind.
Usually this has to do with Work and Companies or Organizations, but not understanding it as a Human concept
makes it much harder to grasp, change, and benefit from. Let's Talk Culture!
Young black philanthropy often goes unrecognized, but this episode of SYP Global Radio will spotlight a major voice in the movement, Friends of Ebonie Founder, Ebonie Johnson Cooper. JET Magazine, Washington Post, Forbes and Huffington Post have all recognized Friends of Ebonie and it is up to us to continue to bring awareness to the community work and leadership of black millennials. In 2013, she began the Changing the Face of Philanthropy Summit, which offers an opportunity to bring together African American millennials to strengthen giving behaviors and develop strategic action plans for civic leadership and involvement. Like many other industries, we need to see faces of familiarity and we are hoping to aid in changing the face of philanthropy. Let's discuss...
